3 in 5 newborns are born with varying levels of Jaundice, resulting in the need for phototherapy.
They are stripped of their clothing and placed under a special light for up to 7 days.
This is a traumatizing time away from their mother. This device eliminates a traditional flat surface.
The newborn is placed on a hammock like mesh, and the rocker cradles the newborn to mimic a mother’s caress.
